I think so far Miami is third, but with the low occupancy of it's skyscrapers the demand for highrises will go down and the Miami building boom will be over.

As far as foresights go, Houston has for sure got the best potential to be massive as far as land area goes.

Most people don't realize Houston's size. We have cranes everywhere and the construction is on going even in a busted economy. The fact that Houston is so big, area-wise, takes away from the skyline. You could put every major Texas City together (Dallas, Ft. Worth, San Antonio, Austin, and Galveston) and still not have the skyline magnitude of Houston.

IMO Houston skyline is bigger than Miami. I have been to Miami and have seen the skyline. Miami just has A downtown, and that's it. Houston has districts like downtown, uptown, Energy Corridor, Greenway Plaza, Medical Center, Museum District and the loop, probably more than I know of (The sprawl thends to lose people.) I would rank it like this
1. New York City
2. Houston
3. Chicago
4. Los Angeles
5. San Francisco

Great pictures. But if you're going to use all that for Houston. Do the same for Miami and be consistent. Miami has Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Aventura, North Miami, North Miami Beach, Midtown Miami, and South Miami.

Skylines are about aesthetics not size.

My favorites are Seattle, Pittsburgh, and San Francisco.
